Badmiton has been around for centuries and I just love it because it so much easier for me than tennis. We love to play when we are at the lake, especially in the early fall when the weather is a bit cooler and always have a great time. Badmiton is said to have been originally played at a garden party of the Duke of Beaufort at his home in the country so we feel a little fancy (but don’t look it) when we are swinging away at that birdie!
How to play:
You need rackets, a birdie – also called a shuttlecock, and a net
Stand on opposite sides of the net in the opposite corners
The first player serves underhand
If the birdie hits the ground or goes out of bounds – the server gets the point or the receiver wins the serve
The first player to get 15 points is the winner
It's even better if you can find some great vintage rackets. I am always picking up them up at flea markets when I see them. Sooooo much fun !!!!!
